Connection lasts less than 10 seconds

A ThinLinc system administrator using Ubuntu 20.04 contacted us and reported that he did not succeed to make ThinLinc work. He gets a message saying that the connection lasts less than 10 seconds and that it may have a setup problem. What should be checked to solve this issue? What are the most common causes?

the log files on the server … to see why the thinlinc session is dying there … the content of /var/opt/thinlinc might be interesting

Yes - specifically /var/opt/thinlinc/sessions/<username>/last/xinit.log. This file should contain information about why the session failed to start (or ended very quickly).
